Safe Haven Training works with several companies/clubs. There is a large variety of requests coming from all over the world. We provide training in RYA courses (Powerboat, Short Range Certificate online/classroom, RYA First Aid, RYA Cevni exams online) . Also a variety of DAN courses in English or Dutch and typical Dutch courses like Basis Certificaat Marifonie, Klein Vaarbewijs 1 and 2. In certain cases we provide bespoke First Aid training modules, safety training exercises etc..

In the Netherlands we work for example with Yachting clubs and companies like


  • IJspegel Academy at Scheveningen (RYA First Aid, RYA Short Range Certificate) ,
  • Royal Rowing and Sailing club de Maas (RYA Short Range Certificate, RYA First Aid, Klein Vaarbewijs 1).
  • We work with Watersportcentrum Huizen and
  • Will start working together with KNRM Huizen.
  • Also we assist Maersk Drilling Training Department Singapore for oil drilling rig crew for SRC.
  • We work with superyachts located in the Netherlands for certain crew training, mostly RYA en DAN courses .


In the future (when covid settles down and instructor training is possible) the intention is to provide

  • Company Emergency Response (In Dutch BHV) including fire safety training
  • RYA Diesel Engine
  • RYA Radar
In all cases we prefer longterm relationships based on trust and mutual respect. 
We give you our word to do something and expect the same from you.
We have a network of persons/companies we work with, medical doctors, Yachtmaster Sail Instructors, SRC assessors, DAN Instructor Network, VIOK network, Vaarbewijscurssusen etc..
Privat lessons
We regularly get request for private lessons (PB 2, SRC, First Aid). It is not possible to get private lessons during coursedays where already bookings have been accepten. Send as an email for any request. To give you a feeling, costs incl VAT 125 per hour, with a minimum of 4 hours depending on your wishes. Excluding materials, transport, fuel etc. Any tuition on our boat means you have to wear our lifejackets . Just send an email with your wishes and we will see if we can assist you.
We do NOT provide   (based on some past request we received)
  • any sailing courses at all (regardless how often people ask!), however we can refer you to people we trust if you want us to do so.
  • any jet ski training and do not intend to do so in the near future
  • training in the UK , in some very special cases we will look if something is possible outside the Netherlands as long as we can guarantee quality and is mutual beneficial.
  • PB 1 or 2 training outside our RYA approved training area (Huizen, the Netherlands)
So if you are interested in any of our courses/training please send an email to
We do not provide our phone number on the website. Why not? Probably not the most commercial action to do so, however it saves us a lot of time of talking to persons/companies who want to sell us unwanted stuff.
We do provide our phone number if we receive an email and we have sufficient trust in the sincerity of your request.
